Ibogaine therapy can offer addiction relief during opioid withdrawal

Western culture has long attempted to denigrate and stamp out the use of this psychedelic plant, but it is gaining clinical interest for its ability to help those who struggle with addiction … Perhaps, as concern about heroin and opioid addiction increases, government officials will reconsider their stance on this.

In the United States, ibogaine remains a Schedule I substance, meaning that the government believes there is no medical use for the substance and that it poses a strong risk of both abuse and addiction. This is just another misguided side effect of the War on Drugs, which has also banned many substances that can help people deal with addiction to more dangerous drugs.
